Foreword
The present instructions are concerned with the situations which, according to the
experience of FLSmidth, are the most likely to occur during manufacture, installa-
tion, operation and maintenance of the equipment. An exhaustive enumeration of
all conceivable situations, which may occur, cannot be provided.
Consequently, if a situation should arise, the occurrence of which is not foreseen in
the instructions, and which the operator is/or feels unable to handle, it is recom-
mended that FLSmidth is contacted without undue delay for advice on appropriate
action.

All references to relevant safety standards are given at the EC declaration of con-
formity if required.
Reference by seller to any international or national standard does not incur an
obligation on seller to provide any recipient, reader or user of the documentation
with samples or copies of the said standard(s).
Hence, any recipient, reader or user of the documentation is expected at his own
cost to obtain necessary knowledge of the contents of any of the standards
referred to.

Safety
Potential safety risks, and correct mode of conduct subject to such risks, are con-
tinuously described in the text in relation to specific actions.
See instructions 32031 for general safety rules and the separate equipment-specific
safety instructions for a complete list of all unforeseen risks in connection with the
installation, operation and maintenance of the equipment.

1.0 Introduction

This guideline should be followed for site installation for mill housings for roller
mills.

2.0 Installation

2.1 Installation documentation


Refer also to installation instructions and drawings for mill housing supplied. Rega

2.1.1 Welding of mill housings

Mill housings for OK, and ATOX mills are relative voluminous constructions made of
mild steel, and depending on the chosen transport the housings are delivered in
sizes suitable for transport and they do subsequently have to be welded together
on site.
General specified welding requirement is quality QA according to FLS norm 520530
if not otherwise stated on the drawings. The following instruction can be read as a
guideline for grove geometry and welding of various butt welds and fillet welds in
the construction.

General comments for welding:

Welding method: Shielded Metal Arc Welding - SMAW


Welding quality QA according to FLS norm 520530
Welding with electrodes, root weld with FLS PP 9721 ~ AWS E7016-1, and fill up
welds with PP 9720 ~ AWS E7018-1 (PP, see FLS norm 7.000001)
High recovery electrodes are not normally used for root welding, as the risk of
inclusions is high
Welding to be executed by certified personnel
Preheating is not necessary for mild steel welding under normal conditions
In places where wear resistant plates are fitted the inside butt welds are ground
for smooth surface
When rigging up the construction fig. 1.
the different elements are tack welded
in such a way that the linear misalignment h is
the smallest of either max. 0,25x t or
max. 4 mm.
(4mm > h < 0,25x t) (fig. 1.)

Plate joints are offset minimum 100 mm to avoid fig. 2.
